One of the things I wanted to have was a portable fence that I could put up at the campgrounds so the greyhounds could come out of the trailer and then I could put their leashes on so they don’t kill each other trying to get out of the 24 inch doorway. My very helpful and invaluable friend, John Mullen, helped me bring to life this idea I had for a fence.
I bought almost 4 ft. high poultry fencing and 4 ft. high 1/2″ PVC pipe. John cut tree stands for me and drilled the holes to hold the poles. I then zip tied the fencing to the poles. I’ll be able to pull the poles out and roll up the fencing to store. It’s very light and easy to handle but sturdy enough to keep the greyhounds in and safe. They will never be left alone outside and the area is small enough that I can grab them by their harness if someone or something is coming towards us.
John cut the pole stands like puzzle pieces so they fit together and then can be taken apart to be stored, taking up much less space. Since the fencing will be last in and first out, I can set it right inside of the door while traveling. This is a good size but I’m going to get one more roll of fencing so I can make it big enough that everyone can spread out and be comfortable.
The ends will be secured to the trailer somehow and the two sections will be fastened in the middle. I’ve set it up in the yard so I can work with them not to jump on it or challenge it. I think it will work perfectly for being able to enjoy being outside and be off the leashes. And also to be able to easily leash them up for walks.
I love how they’re looking at me as I was sitting inside the fence once again wondering what on earth is going on!
